Father’s Day Giveaway -- I’m Going to Be a Dad: Now What?

Most pregnancy and early childhood books are targeted to moms. After all, she’s the one who’s physically carrying the child, going through labor, giving birth, breastfeeding and more. But today’s dads are much more involved in the whole process, from attending childbirth classes and being in the delivery room to getting up for night feedings and changing diapers. Of course, dads don’t really need to know how to get rid of stretch marks or cracked nipples. However, they want to be able to understand better why their wife is so tired, how to know if she’s in labor, and what supplies they’ll need for the baby. So, how can they get that information without wading through the “mom stuff”?

The answer: I’m Going to Be a Dad: Now What? This book is tailor-made for expectant and new dads. It walks them through each trimester of pregnancy, childbirth, and baby’s first two years, but from their perspective. It also explains baby illnesses, dangers, and games, and the emotional issues that new dads often deal with, such as, “Will I Be Able to Afford a Baby?” “Will I Have Independence?” and “Can I Handle the Labor?” This book gives dads the basics to increase their confidence as future fathers without overwhelming them with details that aren’t that relevant to them.

Father’s Day is coming up. If you know a new dad or a daddy-to-be, get them a copy of I’m Going to Be a Dad: Now What? Click on the link below to purchase through Amazon!

  11. My son is expecting his first child. His wife is career USAF and they are currently stationed in Turkey, so it won't always be easy or convienent (or possible) for him to ask questions as they come up. So, this book would be a great help to him. asthenight at gmail dot com
